Training programs for competitive golfers

Systematic training

BDGA coaches follow a systematic training program, as proven by the top training academies in the United States to help their students improve and also peak during times of competition.  Basically what this means, is that BDGA students get taken through different phases in their golf training and it can be broken down into the following: 1. Skills training 2. Pre-competition training 3. Tournament preparation 4. Competitive play 5. Tournament evaluation 6. Active rest 7. Back to skills training.

Understanding your mental profile can be a huge help in understanding how you will react under pressure.
